Slash the Fainting Coach

I have an important lesson to teach you today.
It is how to faint dramatically.
Do it right
and it should look like this!

Isn't it realistic?

So here's what you do.

Step 1: Walk slowly and deliberately towards the victim of your choice.
Mine is usually Mommy.

Step 2: Once you have caught their attention,
plant your bottom on the floor slowly
as if you're about to sit.

Step 3: Instead of sitting,
quickly plonk the rest of your body sideways
onto the floor.

This is what you should look like now.

But we're not done yet!

Step 4: Arch your back dramatically
and give it one good looooong stretch.

Then slowly relax your body.

Now here is the REALLY important bit.

Step 5: Just when it looks like you're not going to move anymore,
give your chin a quick and sharp tilt.
I don't know why,
but humans find this irresistibly cute!

If you have been doing all these steps correctly,
you should be looking like this!

You may not get it right away,
but that's okay.
Keep practicing and you'll get there.
More importantly..

Oh, Slash! Sam & I were enthralled with your "how to" and we have printed it out and put it on our wall so we can practice and look as adorable as you do! Only problem is, is my Sam. He's doing that droolie thing when he looks at your gorgeous self. Am I going to have a problem with this? Well, you ARE gorgeous; maybe I'll have to grin and bear it...better idea: I'll grin and bare it :D
Now you see why Sam loves me ;)
